It's now November, so we can officially start thinking about Christmas, making it the perfect time to receive the news that we may be in for a white Christmas this year.

The prediction has been made by New Zealander long-range weather guru Ken Ring. The Kiwi said,

There may be fluctuating temperatures with rain in the first and third weeks [of December] and a temperature drop around 12-16 [degrees]. Frost is likely just before Christmas Day, then on December 26 come cold south easterly winds followed by wintry rain as temperatures barely climb above freezing. Expect snow on or near 12 and 28 of December.
